About the Event
The Personal Injury Commission Act 2020 (NSW) was assented to on 11 August 2020 and will commence
its functions in New South Wales on 1 March 2021. The enactment of this reform is the latest in a line of
reforms to both workers compensation and motor accidents law by the New South Wales Government.
This Act establishes a single, independent tribunal in New South Wales with specialist motor accidents and
workers compensation divisions. The Personal Injury Commission (PIC) is to be independent and judicial;
have statutorily appointed presiding officers; provide a judicial appeal mechanism; publish its decisions
and allow claimants to have access to legal representation. In this session, the President of the PIC,
Judge Gerard Phillips, will present his vision for the PIC and what it means for injured people of
NSW and for practitioners in the jurisdiction.
